is the opposite of what it does. it ends up creating the environment where we have less ability to get ahead, it creates dependency, it plays crony capitalism, which hurts career entrepreneurship and opportunity. all the government and what it says it does, helps the poor, make sure that markets on the right direction, they actually do the opposite. they are short-term oriented to the next election. they have their own agenda. they don't respond to the marketplace the way a business should. they have their own agenda in terms of those special interest groups and the like. the bigger they get from them were hardly due to the economy and the less chance that they have to improve your lot in life, as abraham lincoln put it. >> host: is reality a part of capitalism to smack it is the basis of capitalism. contrary to the hollywood cartoon character of business people rubbing their hands in glee at the misery of others, even if you lust for money, you don't get it unless you provide products or services that somebody else wants. so without us even realizing it, it enhances humanity. you have to cr

this environment protected. they know that these toxic waste dumps should have been cleaned up a long time ago, and they know that people's lives and health are being risked, because we've had an administration that has been totally insensitive to the law and the demand for the protection of the environment. the american people want their children educated. they want to get our edge back in science, and they want a policy headed by the president that helps close this gap that's widening between the united states and europe and japan. the american people want to keep opening doors. they want those civil rights laws enforced. they want the equal rights amendment ratified. they want equal pay for comparable effort for women. and they want it because they've understood from the beginning that when we open doors, we're all stronger, just as we were at the olympics. i think as you make the case, the american people will increasingly come to our cause. >> mr. mondale, isn't it possible that the american people have heard your message -- and they are listening -- but they are rejecting it? >> well, to

to control our preferences. we are victims of our environments growing up. we are victims of our context that we live in and, therefore, we all, you know, are not "responsible for that behavior and therefore should be mitigating." when you look at the testimony that comes in, whether it's from a mother or from neighbors or from teachers that are talking about really mitigating circumstances, they are the rotten social background kind of arguments, the abuse and the suffering that that individual experienced and those things show up in the brain. the brain is also a sponge. the brain isn't simply created by genetics and it's very much shaped by environment. and so my mentor john monaghan likened the problem of predicting violent people to predicting violent storms. when you think of meteorology, you think of the difficulty of classifying a hurricane and tracking a hurricane, making judgments about such complex behavior that has sort of chaotic premises underlying it, you're going to make lots of mistakes. you're going to make lots of mistakes in both directions. sometimes you're going to

". the second study was described in the "new york times" in its environment section on the front page that described data that indicated san francisco bay along the embarcadero may rise 3 feet in the next eight years. the findings of the two studies merit careful consideration of land use questions confronting san francisco. i have described these to the planning department and the port commission and the board of supervisors. approving such significant capital projects should be based on the best and most scientific data preparing against flooding will be expensive, but it is important not to ignore the city's safety based on the most recent data that we have. thank you. >> thank you. is there any additional public comments? seeing none mr. chairman can we close public comment? >> yes. >> okay. public comment is closed. so mr. chairman i move that we forward this to the full board with a positive recommendation. this proposed community safety element went through a very, very lengthy thorough process and public vetting with public hearing and i think it's very, very strong and d

. i am with the department of the environment and pleased to be the emcee of this event. you can tell from the display that this has something to do with some electric vehicles. so, i would like to start the program with our first presenter. and introduce to you a man who is certainly no stranger to bringing clean technology to san francisco and electric vehicles, are mayor, ed lee. [applause] >> thank you, bob. >> you for your leadership. good morning, everyone. we are going to be talking about something that i have been very interested in, and that is mobility. the ability to have technology work for you, like this microphone. we have worked hard for a number of years. i had the privilege of working with gavin newsom in the past to during his administration to create the electric vehicle infrastructure for the city and began the conversation and the collaboration with the other counties to bring an electric vehicle corridor. it signals our efforts to support the creation of infrastructure to the electric vehicle industry. of course we have encouraged the private automobile creators
health and safety and environment because we are discharging into the bay and into the ocean. this is essentially the first treatment here at our waste water treatment facility. what we do is slow down the water so that things either settle to the bottom or float to the top. you see we have a nice selection of things floating around there, things from bubble gum wrappers, toilet paper, whatever you dump down the toilet, whatever gets into our storm drains, that's what gets into our waste water treatment and we have to clean. >> see these chains here, this keeps scum from building up. >> on this end in the liquid end basically we're just trying to produce a good water product that doesn't negatively impact the receiving water so that we have recreation and no bad impact on fish and aquatic life. solids is what's happening. . >> by sludge, what exactly do you mean? is that the actual technical term? . >> it's a technical term and it's used in a lot of different ways, but this is organic sewage sludge. basically what it is is, oh, maybe things that come out of your garbage dispo
quite frequently are there to make sure that the environment the teachers are working in a satisfactory and improve that. also to make sure their compensation is fair and reasonable. of this area of the valuation always seems to come -- but this area of evaluation always seems to come into conflict. >> that is because of recipes for evaluation. i have yet to meet a teacher anywhere in the world who does not go into their classroom with one intention and one intention only, and that is to improve on the previous day. i do not think teachers have ever been more accountable at any time in history than we are now keeping political scrutiny, media scrutiny, student scrutiny. we have never been more accountable. let's get that right. we are accountable. we except accountability. all we say is the we accept responsibility toward our students, we want government to accept the obligation to make sure classrooms are properly resources the -- properly restores -- resourced. >> are the challenges back home that we should know about so we do not feel like we are the only ones? >> we have unions and
invest overseas a lot of places where they can make money in a zero interest rate environment. the low interest rates which the federal reserve told us will be that way until 2015 a are also hurting savers. >> they absolutely are. it creates inflation risk. people are penalized. the return if they are investing their savings some place safe the return is not keeping pace with inflation. every year they are losing money. so of course that creates incentive to invest in riskier assets and that's what we had with the crisis, low interest rates then. not as low as now but people are looking for return with the sub prime mortgages. it creates incentives which create significant risk for the system. and i think the fed is proceeding with the best of intentions but the risk of what they are doing is tremendous an the benefits are incremental at best. >> it has been about the fed providing stimulus. what kind of fiscal policy would you like to see? >> the solution is not hard but it is having the political will to do it. you have to get spending under control and the defense budget. we are und
. i believe that we will be better off if we protect this environment. and contrary to what the president says, i think their record on the environment is inexcusable and often shameful. these laws are not being enforced, have not been enforced, and the public health and the air and the water are paying the price. that's not fair for our future. i think our future requires a president to lead us in an all-out search to advance our education, our learning, and our science and training, because this world is more complex and we're being pressed harder all the time. i believe in opening doors. we won the olympics, in part, because we've had civil rights laws and the laws that prohibit discrimination against women. i have been for those efforts all my life. the president's record is quite different. the question is our future. president kennedy once said in response to similar arguments, "we are great, but we can be greater.' we can be better if we face our future, rejoice in our strengths, face our problems, and by solving them, build a better society for our children. thank yo
operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment. we're america's natural gas. >>> typhoon jelawat continues to roar in the far east. more than 50 people have been hurt. hundreds of thousands of homes without power on japan's islands of okinawa. the storm is comparable to a category 3 hurricane. we have report this morning of two opposition leaders killed in venezuela. the pair was stopped in a western state saturday. when they exited their vehicle, gunmen opened fire. opposition party candidates will face prison hugo chavez in elections one week from today. >>> protesters battled with riot police in spain saturday night. the austerity measures were imposed to help spain secure loans and reduce debt. unemployment in the nation is close to 25%. >>> today iraq, a series of bombings has left at least 16 people dead. thmajority of the blasts occurring in and around the city of baghdad. five explosions there and a car bombing at a check point that killed three iraqi police officers. >>> to syria now where rebel and government forces e fighting it out block by block.
/3 of the country saying we're on the wrong track, usually that's a very difficult environment for the incumbent to get elected. and for the president, voters are not convinced they wanted to go the romney's direction, but extending where we are for the next four years is not an attractive process. he's got to walk that tight rope by saying we are moving in the right direction. and also kind of give people a sense of the next four years that are going to be better in their arrives than the previous four have been. >> sometimes we look ahead and see that yes, what these candidates say is going to be important and pivotal what their body language has said. who can forget the gore-bush debate, and you have to wonder betwn these two candidates, romney and obama, who's likely to win, who's likely to be too breathy, or maybe be an easy read just by finally expressions that could potentially hurt their performance? >> first of all, debates have -- there's no subsequent record of whether debates have been significant or not. certainly in 1980, to some extent in 1992. if you have looked at the debates fr
and the environment. we're america's natural gas. >>> a discovery that nasa could only hope for. evidence of fast flowing streams on the surface of mars. denton abel is a plan stair expert with the american museum of planetary history. he joins me live from new york. denton, we've heard about water on mars. people are really excited about this one. why? tell me. >> before we've see water from space, we've seen the evidence of large-scale flows. now we have proof on the surface. our robot geologist is doing its job very well. >> what's amazing is that they're finding the water could have been almost hip deep. what does that suggest? >> this would have been a rushing stream, coming out of a deep canyon in the wall of this big crater, a hundred mile crater that we're in. the rim has this long canyon about 30 meters deep. an alluvial fan comes out of that spreading material from the top into the bottom of the crater. that's where we're finding these rounded pebbles that indicate a strong stream was there. >> which is really remarkable. look, that is a picture of mars there. the more black and white o
procurement called next generation desktop environment. so, agencies are moving in that direction, and we're seeing more and more of those come in. mostly cross-domain is a component of a bigger procurement, not a procurement on itself. >> on itself. and so you would then team with other firms and there's a lot of teaming going on around all that cross-domain. yes. and so people looking to enter this segment of the marketplace, what should they focus on? i mean, obviously, their competency. what else? >> you know, i would say partner with someone who's in the space already. we're not the only ones, of course. there are others. because it's a tough-- it's a tough area to get into if you're not experienced in it. >> ok. yes. and when you mention security clearance, is it a highly secured space? >> yes, it is. most of the solutions are installed in scifs or other secure facilities. >> mm-hmm. so, if you haven't been in this, it's not something that you can, as an ingenue, start up. >> right. it's a difficult startup. yeah. >> and you need to have those clearances. what about the depth that r
to be at risk in that environment? is it too unstable of an environment for productive security exercise to continue, and your thoughts on that? >> well, i appreciate that question. in 2001, i voted to authorize use of military force in afghanistan. in the days and months following the 9/11 attacks on the united states. it was a very clear and focused mission to go after those who planned and executed that attack. and i believe that our brave men and women who went to afghanistan very capably fulfilled that mission frankly and fairly in short order. i was in afghanistan in august of 2010 in kabul and bagram air force base and met with wisconsin soldiers and folks in the military from the senior ranks to the -- to those coming back from forward operating bases. you would be so proud of those men and women. but this nation building mission is not the one that was authorized and it's now time for them to come home. >> governor thompson? >> my opponent just, i think, misstated. she said she voted for the sanctions and against iran. she voted against the sanctions in 2006, 2009, and 2010, and
cares very much about the environment, about the small nations and the commonwealth that face particular challenges like the irelands nation's. so many things that she has contributed to that the british people feel indebted to her for having done. and as i have been going around the country talking to groups i detected a kind of list fullness almost on the part of people. why don't we have somebody like this can unify the country, to the light above politics. she performs a very valuable service. >> host: "elizabeth the queen" is the name of the book. sally bedell smith is the author. thank you for joining us on book tv today. thank you all for being here, and that is going to close out our coverage of the 2012 national book festival. thanks for being with us. this will all read-share overnight on book tv on c-span2. >> that even part of the 2011 national book festival here in washington, d.c. to find out more visit loc.gov/book fest. >> a wonderful introduction. introd authors love great introduction and great reviews. r th for those of you who go ontoos amazon and click four or five,

and the environment. we're america's natural gas. not quite knowing what the next phase was going to be, you know, because you been, you know, this is what you had been doing. you know, working, working, working, working, working, working. and now you're talking about, well you know, i won't be, and i get the chance to spend more time with my wife and my kids. it's my world. that's my world. ♪ ♪ >> the reason that i think it pretty clearly, it was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. >> this is turning into something not short of benghazi-gate. what is going on here? >> chris: defense secretary panetta, finally calling the benghazi assault an act of terrorism. while republican senator bob corker joins a growing number of officials questioning whether the obama administration was involved in a cover-up. and, we're back now with the panel. the director of national intelligence issued an extraordinary statement friday afternoon, that their initial information was, that it was a spontaneous protest, but since then they got new infor
mean investing in education, health care, the environment, and middle-class tax cuts and retirement security. that is my agenda and that is why i think that it's not just a question of experience. >> governor bush, one minute rebuttal. >> well, we do come from different places. i come from west texas. the governor is the chief executive officer. we know how to set agendas. i think you'll find the difference reflected in our budgets. i want to take one-half of the surplus and dedicate it to social security. one-quarter of the surplus for important projects, and i want to send one-quarter of the surplus back to the people who pay the bills. i want everybody who pays taxes to have their tax rates cut. and that stands in contrast to my worthy opponent's plan, which will increase the size of government dramatically. his plan is three times larger than president clinton's proposed plan eight years ago. it is a plan that will have 200 new programs -- expanded programs and creates 20,000 new bureaucrats. it it empowers washington. tonight you're going to hear that my passion and my vision i
thinking about growth we need to think about the animals and the environment and the ecology as well. >> all right. mr. lagos. >> yes. one of the reasons i moved to san francisco 35 years ago was because there was not a large population here. i moved from los angeles and it's grown 50,000 people in those years. i don't want to see it grow further per se and i'm not a fan of developing more housing but to answer the question if we add more housing i would say loosen up the rules to allow homeowners to create inlaw apartments and that way you open up unit availability at some level for additional housing. other than that i would be opposed to any new construction of any major land use of development for housing including the three major projects in the pipeline. >> mr. rogers. >> if there is going to be development it could be in the trans bays terminal that is truly close to rapid transit. walking distance to bart. walking distance to the train that heads down south. this would be an ideal place for a development to occur. a place like park merced where you have 17,000 people w
, but there is a greater need for training in journalism to get journalists to understand this new environment we are working in, and also to educate the broader public about the need and public good that journalism serves and why it warrants investment from private investors as well as non-profit organizations. >> to the question about the huge influx of new sites, i think it is partially a question of scale. for example, i do not know -- i know very few hyper local sites that have full staff, but i know tons of individual bloggers who get paid to blog, and that is all they do, but they only focus on small, really targeted niches. this could be the mission district in san francisco. a friend of mine only focuses on concord conservative, right- wing politics. i think you really have to know your audience. you have to know specifically what your niche is. and do not just look at yourself as reporters. look at everything that you have to offer, all of your skills, and see how you can serve the community better. one of the things we see is we do not think any time soon that just advertising is going
the environment. this puts people to work and creates manufacturing jobs. it lowers gas prices. it helps everybody becauseit lowers the cost to heat your home in the winter, to cool it in the summer, the electricity we pay. that means your paycheck goes farther. that means people living on fixed income have more income to live on. this is important. with an energy policy like the keystone pipeline, opening our land for development, we can stop sending our money to the middle east. it helps our economy and paychecks. [applause] another area -- we have all these people in between jobs. for every person who got a job last month, nearly four people stopped looking for a job. we are slipping behind. what we see when we look at the faces, talk to the people, see the names, it is a person in their 30's, 40's, 50's, early 60's. i will get to the person in their 20's in a minute. [laughter] it is a person who came out of school, got a career, got a good job and then their job went away. when the factory left. now they do not have anything to replace it with. we need to help people in the middle of their ca
the ability to cause us taxpayers to have to pay them for the right to protect our environment and our water supply and our climate and human rights and wages and things like that. so this is absolutely outrageous. if we could go back to a system of one person, one vote, and have a real free press that enabled us to communicate and inform each other this would be a wonderful idea. unfortunately we're not there right now, so political parties in my view allow us to work together around the shared agenda. and the green party is really the one political party that is not funded by corporate money, by money that's coming from special interests. so in my way it's a way -- view it's a way for us to work together on our lives, future, education, our health and environment. host: according to the latest fcc records you received a recent installment of about $160,000, part of the matching funds still in place for those candidates who agree to accept matching funds. is that a enough money to spread the green party message? guest: we have a different way of approaching this. the big parties use tv adve
of different laws. some of our panelists will address those. even though now we are in an environment where there is a republican majority in the house and a slimmer majority in the senate, please note that the leader and democrats are going fight hard to keep their agenda and restart our economy, and there will be more work to be done. i would like to hand over the podium to nicole rivera, who put this together. she will introduce the panelists and go over some logistics. i want to point out quickly that we are being recorded by san francisco government tv. the camera in front is only aimed at the podium. it is not taking shots of the audience, only the podium for people who want to ask questions. so do not worry, you are not on tv if you do not want to be. >> thank you for your patience. i am a representative with leader pelosi, and i'm thrilled to have you today to learn more of our best practices for accessing credit. it is a priority for our office. we are very well aware of how small businesses are running up against the wall right now in terms of trying to get the credit and loans th
